Career[edit]

Gill co-founded a Canadian production company Rhythm Boyz Entertainment with Amrinder Gill on 19 March 2013.[2] The company was named after their college time Bhangra group of same name.[3][4] In 2014, a music album "Judaa 2" by Amrinder Gill and Dr Zeus was produced by company.[5] He made his debut as a film producer with Angrej in 2015. Conceived as a romantic comedy set in the pre-partitioned Punjab, the film was directed by Simerjit Singh and was written by Amberdeep Singh, and starred Amrinder Gill, Sargun Mehta, and Aditi Sharma in lead roles. It grossed 307 million (equivalent to 350 million or US$5.0 million in 2018) in whole theatrical run, making it one of the highest-grossing Punjabi films of all time.[6] Also, the film was critically acclaimed and won ten awards at PTC Punjabi Film Awards including Best Film.[7] Gill in an interview disclosed that their team tries to produce family and meaningful films, and most of the films produced by him are "U" rated in India.[8]
